There are literally hundreds of different physios and therapists in Newcastle and hundreds of ways they could treat you - you’ve probably experienced some. We have many techniques at our disposal to reduce pain and improve movement.
The reality is that these techniques are all acting in some way on your nervous system, so there is no one magic technique for a certain problem, and a therapist that tells you you need a huge amount of manual therapy is out of touch.
The aim is to restore your normal way of moving, in whichever way suits you, and then work at keeping you that way. Education, advice and exercise are always our focus.
We certainly use our hands, and when we do it is very effective, but we are not magic. There is no magic, just quality physio, or the other stuff.
